Reflections on Pro Athlete Trades
A MESSAGE FROM CEO IKEM CHUKUMERIJE - Pro Athlete Relocation
I thought I would share some personal reflections for a moment, reflections about the personal nature of working with professional athletes and their families during tough relocation times.
Over the years I have assisted countless players and coaches from the NBA, NFL, MLB and NHL with their real estate and relocation needs. It is an emotional roller-coaster for pro athletes and their families as they move from city to city. Not only that, but in many instances a trade comes as a complete shock to the players, many times catching them completely unsuspecting.
During phone conversations and face-to-face meetings with these players and their families, the shock and concern is visible on their faces and in the tone of their voices. Make no mistake about it: relocation is a difficult process no matter what business you are in or what sport you play. Once you are established in a city your family settles in, the children make friends and get comfortable in their schools, and then a trade happens and that lovely life is turned upside down.
I have had the opportunity and honor to befriend many of these athletes and I understand their frustrations; I also recognize that this is all part of the business and it is my job to make this relocation the smoothest and less stressful process possible.
At SportsRelocation.com, our business relationship with a player extends far beyond our initial transaction. It, in fact, moves from a business relationship to a friendship, and that is one aspect of this business that I love. We've made it a point to treat each of our clients as an extension of our business and not just a transaction.
To our faithful clients, Thank You for your continued support and professionalism!
